The other day i went through my pictures and found a couple to try and Illustrate. I wanted to try and challenge myself as i have been producing a lot of portraits and not a lot else. This image gave me the chance to practice illustrating an entire person and an object. In this case the object is a BMX. It was a long process and tedious as i still have some things to learn about Adobe Illustrator but i am getting there.
Fellow Illustrator Phil Shelly did this amazing illustration of me on my BMX, check his website www.pbrainillustration.com for more coolness!
Little sketchbook update, sorry its been a while! At the moment I’m preparing some ideas for new characters in the run-up to a live art battle in Camden in a few weeks. Ill post the event soon when the flyers are done. More soon!
4 days of drawing in London, Box Park Unit 55. Its called “Shit Factory” we did this project/challenge as part of Shellsuitzombie’s & D&AD’s “New Blood Festival 2013”. Thanks A lot to Paolo Fiore who helped us out! he’s just been nominated as a finalist in Icon’s 2013 Graduate T-shirt competition, A good recruit!
Last week i teamed up with Darkmatter Collective to help with a mural at Boxpark Shoreditch to help with exposure following the DandAD Newblood events run by shellsuitzombie. It was great to work with Pete and Phil (dogboy) who showed me how they normally collaborate, sketching out the characters and buildings then drawing over eachothers work to create the feel of continuity. Because of a time limit we had to power through the drawing giving it a much looser feel than the tight linework we three seem prone to. overall was a great experiment and cant wait to do more like this. peace
